With his sixth Bellator headliner rapidly approaching, Cheick Kongo said he’s on board with the company adjusting its policy when it comes to the length of main event fights. Kongo (24-10-2 MMA, 6-2 BMMA), who will look to move one step closer to fighting for the vacant heavyweight championship at Bellator 161 when he participates in his third consecutive main event bout, this time against Tony Johnson (10-2 MMA, 2-0 BMMA), is open to the company following the UFC and moving to five-round non-title fights. The Frenchman has gone the distance in all but one of his main event bouts with the promotion. He’s come out on the winning end all but once.
